Seussical is for all audiences

Hillsboro High School will present "Seussical the Musical" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the high school auditorium.

Reserved seating tickets are $5 and can be purchased through the high school office.

If the HHS Trojans continue in the football playoffs, Friday evening's performance will be Monday evening.

"Seussical" is based on the books of T.S. Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. Stories include "Horton Hears a Who," "Horton Hatches an Egg," "McElligot's Pool," and "The Butter Battle."

Children will enjoy the bright colors, fast action, and rhyming lyrics, while adults will enjoy the familiar stories and life lessons.

"This is a very talented cast and they are exciting to watch on stage," director Lynn Just said. "I chose this musical to showcase the many wonderful singers we have, and they are doing a great job telling the Seuss stories through song."
